My French Holiday 2016 – Chateau Pompadour

dsc_0316Last year in June 2016 I holidayed in the “Farming province of Limousin,” the greenest province of France.   I had all the marvelous time a holiday could be.   I did not get the chance to visit Chateau Pompadour as it wasn’t listed at all on the list of venues I wanted to see while there.

I Spent Time by the Lake of “Saint Germain Les Belles”

DSC_0139This year 2016, I chose the month of June for my summer holiday away from home. When my daughter was still at primary and secondary school age, I waited for summer school breaks to go away with her.  Since she has now grown up into a young adult, I prefer to take my summer break before the beginning of school days.  I like to spend time when there is peace and tranquility.  I think I have done my days like all mums, being away with kids are great years to cherish, remembering the noises of our kids and their friends.  But then one day comes the time that we can do it alone in the tranquil and peaceful pace of time.

In The Province of Burgundy

In The Summer of 2014dscn1425As My Friend And I Was Looking For a Country Church He Attended Every Sunday With His Mother As a Young Boy.dscn1606La Bourgogne in the Summer of 2014.   This country lane took me back many years of the life I lived in the village.   Many a years ago, children would fill the country villages, playing and running up and down the country lanes, until the sun left the sky.  Today country lanes are lonely and empty and the children have vanished.  Which of the two questions would you ask?dscn1604Is the world no long a safer place for our children of  the new generations?  or
Is Technology playing its role in this development?dscn1603Though I did not grow up in France, this country lane brings memories to the life I had in villages in the 70’s when I was growing up in the village.  Oh well, bring back my 70’s days, I would roll up and down this country lane with my friends.  Gone the days, only memories remain as I would keep it safe – Down Memory Lane!dscn1602In the end we found the Country Church!   Christian-wise my family believed in their faith and we were regular attendees of our Anglican church.  I grew up loving churches as buildings and trust me wherever in the world I travel, I never miss an opportunity to photograph churches.  In fact they are all historical monuments.  Most churches in the world have faced the first and the second world wars, and to date they are still standing.dscn1607As beautiful as it is, made of stone, old, shabby, and most of all Chic!
(Old, Shabby, Chic and SACRED!) my camera did it right!DSCN1608.JPG And as we left the church behind us, there was already a beautiful sunset in the distance that rolled up the end of the day.
